Beautiful Inside My Head

Yesterday I visited the Sotheby's auction house in New Bond Street to take a look at the items on sale next week in the Damian Hirst auction.

Some of the pieces are quite stunning and it really was a unique opportunity to see so many of the latest works of this artist in one place.

My particular favourite was a piece called 'After the Flood', a large tank of sea green tinted formaldehyde containing a white dove which has an olive branch in it's beak. The guide price for this item is between £1m and £1.5m. Unfortunately at over three metres high it's just too tall for my office, otherwise....

The sale is next week but if you're quick you can still get along and see the works live!
